Halloumi skewers, before grilling them.
Anne kindly invited us to her Midsummer party this year. We had a wonderful day and the food was really delicious, even if it was far from traditional Midsummer’s food which I’m rather bored of. Anne prepared most of the food and all others brought different things as well. Fredrik and I brought lime marinated halloumi skewers and a chocolate truffle cake with walnut crust and a raspberry sauce. Thanks again for inviting us, Anne!
I love Halloumi, I just can’t get enough of that squeky delicious cheese, it’s so easy to use and so easy to eat :-) For the party I prepared skewers with marinated Halloumi, pepper and red onion. I burnt them on the barbeque while the guys were drinking beer and watching, but I did get some help in the end though :-) The skewers were great but next time I’ll marinate them a little longer than just 1 hour.
- Lime Marinated Halloumi Skewers
(makes far too many. I don’t remember the exact quantities, but you get the point)
3 parcels of Halloumi (a total of about 450 g)
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 green pepper
2 red onions
The juice from 2 limes
The juice from 0.5 lemon
freshly grounded pepper
fresh herbs (I used a herb which I don’t recall, but it tasted and smelled like pineapple!)
Prepare the marinade in a bowl. Cut the Halloumi in cubes and put it in the marinade. Put the bowl in the fridge for a couple of hours. Cut the vegetables and then put everything on skewers (if wodden, put them in water for 10 minutes so they don’t start to burn on the barbecue).
Grill the skewers on a barbecue until they get enough colour.
Yummy! Read more about the different dishes on Anne’s blog.
